>> before you bin the drive, you might take a look at your phsical burner
>> setup. If your burner is SATA, just forget about it.
> The two (80 and 160 GB) harddisks I have in my HP Pavilion t3240, are
> 'SATA'. However, the list of specifications of my machine does not
> clarify whether the burner is 'IDE' or 'SATA'. That list can be found
> online via this link:

> Is there another way to find out whether this burner is 'IDE' or 'SATA'?
> With respect to my CD/DVD burner, this has been written on the
> specifications list:
> "(...)16X DVD(+/-)R/RW (+/-)R DL drive. Must use Double-Layer media
> discs in order to take advantage of the DL technology (...)"
>> If it is IDE, you might try to connect it as a master to his very own IDE
>> channel.
> Can you briefly explain how?
>> Doing it like this you will provide a unique IRQ and dma channel to your
>> burner.
> Please, explain what you mean with 'IRQ' and 'dma'.
> Thanks!
